What Constitutes a Hostile Work Environment in Tempe?
It can be difficult to define exactly what a “hostile work environment” looks like, particularly because it is not uncommon for many people to simply not like their job. Not liking a job does not constitute a hostile work environment. However, a true hostile work environment is detrimental to an employee’s financial well-being as well as their emotional and psychological well-being.
In Arizona, employees are offered various protections under both federal and state law. The Tempe hostile work environment attorneys at Yen Pilch Robaina & Kresin PLC have a deep understanding that any person who experiences discrimination, sexual harassment, or retaliation in the workplace based on any of the following protected classes has certainly experienced a hostile work environment:
- Race or color
- Sexual orientation
- Gender identity
- Gender expression
- Marital status
- Religion or Creed
- Pregnancy status
Additionally, we do want to note that protections for members of the LGBTQ+ community are increasing at the federal level.
Our attorneys also want to point out that sexual harassment most certainly constitutes a hostile work environment. The #MeToo Movement has placed a spotlight on various types of sexual harassment and assault that occur in the workplace, but there is still much work to be done. No person should have to experience unwanted physical, verbal, or non-verbal sexual harassment of any kind in the workplace.
